If you like to swim, boat, fish, hike, or enjoy being close to town, then Anvil Lake is the place for you. The lake has extremely clear water and very good fishing.

The Anvil National Recreation Trail system is adjacent to the campground. You can also hike six miles and connect withFranklin Lake Campground.
